, he'll be on the west front of the capitol for his ceremonial swearing in and inaugural speech. dana bash is on the west front. what a view from up there. >> that's right. it is a remarkable view. if our viewers can see what we're seeing and what the president will see tomorrow, you can effectively see down to where you are down the national mall to about the middle of the mall i should say. a spectacular view. sparsely populated right now but it will look different tomorrow. take you back to where i am right now and i am in front of where the president will give the ceremonial, i guess, the ceremonial oath behind me. this is a platform that they started building three and a half months ago and candy, you know, you are here regularly every four years, 1600 people sit on this platform and it's the hottest ticket in town. it is going to be really a remarkable symbol, i think, and everybody here, democrats and republicans, say symbol of the fact there aren't tanks in the streets, no matter the political differences we see every day in the capitol, this is something seamless considering.

to give some ground in the debt fight. dana bash is joining us now. dana, are the republicans in the house of representatives blinking a little here? what's going on? >> a little, wolt if. they say they are going to have a vote that will delay the debt ceiling for three months. so what they are doing, if you really look at house republicans who took the majority two years ago, they did it standing on principle for pretty much every squirmish. it seems that they are becoming a bit more sophisticated, rather, but their understanding, it seems, is that you have to pick your battles. losing credit ratings and so forth, that's not a smart battle to wage. look at some of the most conservative members of the house talking to deirdre walsh at the end of their retreat for three days about picking their battles in a better way. >> deal with the smaller ones first, maybe build up a little momentum, credibility, not only with the credit markets but with the folks back home, that we can actually deal with these things, take the small one first, debt ceiling last, i think it's a rational, reasonable thi

of public opinion which is very relevant here. dana jacobson has interviewed lance armstrong, good to see body of you. let me start by asking each of you, anyone who wasn't watching you last night, you watched the first part of the interview. you were both -- you were not satisfied. i'm putting it nicely. you didn't think he did a good job. >> he wasn't contrite at all. he didn't -- he may have been trying to say i'm sorry. he didn't even come close to it in the way he acted and the way he acted toward people that he hurt. i don't know how he makes up for it tonight. i don't know how that's possible -- >> you don't think he could say something -- he's talking about his wife, his children -- >> i think he could have cried and nobody would have -- i shouldn't say nobody. most people would not have believed him. i think i said at the end of last night, what's so difficult, it was probably too soon. i don't know if he could say anything where he could get the majority of people on his side at this point because he lied for so long about this and he went after people. he didn't just lie, he we

in our penl. david epstein is a senior writer for "sports illustrated." dana jacobson is with cbs sports and paul callan is our legal contributor. you were all critical last night. you didn't feel satisfied. let me ask you, did you feel that -- did he win you another tonight? >> no. and i said earlier there's probably no way he could have won me over. maybe i saw a little more human side when his kids were mentioned. he was -- oprah said do you owe people an apology and he listed the people he owes an apology to, and he didn't do it last night when he had a chance. he didn't do it tonight when he had a chance. he could have done that publicly the way he humiliated them publicly. he didn't win me over. >> he did have a moment where he cried talking about his kids tonight, that there was emotion. but when he answered all of the other questions, david, did you feel better? >> well, i think people would have wanted to see the crying when he was talking about somebody else who he damaged. i don't think it's a surprise that he would be sad about his own loss or the harm in his own life, but he
